Senator Vitter Proposes to Cut Family Planning Funding

Family planning clinics across the country are facing serious attacks by a proposed amendment to the appropriations bill currently being debated in the US Senate. The amendment, introduced by Senator David Vitter (R-LA), would drastically cut family planning funding under Title X, which provides federal funds to family planning clinics and preventative health care. Title X, which we blogged about here, is an instrumental part of keeping family planning clinics, such as Planned Parenthood, open and able to serve communities across the country.

Support family planning clinics by signing this petition to stop Senator Vitter and his allies from moving forward with their anti-choice efforts.
